Welcome to the Heathcote Wine Region. Many award winning wines are grown in this region, namely Shiraz.
This is the fourth of my series in this area. Nestled just on the Northern Highway, there is a dirt road where Geocachers can pull off this busy road to collect this cache. Nice spot to stretch your legs or those of Geokids and Geodogs. Very handy if traveling from Melbourne to Echuca or visa versa. This cache is a nano containing a log only. BYO pen. HEATHCOTE WINE REGION Nestled in a tranquil bush setting at the foot of the McIvor and McHarg ranges, erstwhile gold-rush town Heathcote is renowned for its world-class shiraz, which can be enjoyed alongside wonderful regional produce. Local textures Red soil and warm summers tempered by cool, southerly winds help produce robust wines of power and weight with great texture. Shiraz is Heathcote's flagship varietal, but it also produces superb cabernet sauvignon and is having great success with new red varieties along with viognier and riesling.
